Friday Firesmith – Divorce Papers

Today I went into a store and there behind the counter, facing away from me, was my ex-wife. What was my ex doing in Boston Georgia? What was I doing in Boston Georgia? That’s a long story, really, but I thought about simply backing up through the door I had just entered and walking […]

Friday Firesmith – The Sins of Lady Gaga

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, who goes by the stage name, “Lady Gaga” isn’t body shy. She’s appeared in various stages of nudity on stage and off since she became famous after her debut album burned holes in the charts back in 2008. Gaga has been an outspoken advocate for gay rights, human rights, and […]

Friday Firesmith – Who should we ban?

For reasons that are lost on me, terrorism is blamed on Islam and certain countries and the way we counter this is to ban people who have that religion and are from those countries from coming to America. Following this logic, we ought to profile people who use guns to shoot other people within […]

Friday Firesmith – Disaster Tourists

Last Sunday, January 22, 2017, a series of very strong storms ripped through South Georgia with heavy rains, strong winds, intense lightning, and at least three different killer tornadoes. The storm hit in the very early morning, people were still at home, and the storm made assessment and recovery a very real problem for […]

Friday Firesmith – Nukes

You can believe North Korea has an operational ICBM with a nuclear warhead that it can deliver and is operable, or not believe it.

Friday Firesmith – The Economics of Tyger Linn

All the dogs I have ever shared space and my life with have all been trained not to steal from one another. Most have learned to catch treats on the fly and most realize when a dog misses a throw, or just plain fumbles the treat, whoever was supposed to get the treat still […]

Friday Firesmith – Christmas

In two days the nation will begin to emerge again from its wrapping paper cocoon to discover, once again, that Christmas is a fraud. There will be a brief and orgasmic moment in time where a few children are granted their most fervent wishes, but that will be followed by the vague feeling that […]

Friday Firesmith – Phones & Party Lines

I’m one of the last people who remember “party line” telephone service. A Party Line was used way back when, in the early sixties, to get telephone service to some of the more rural customers who lived out in the sticks. That was during a time when not everyone had a telephone and not […]

Friday Firesmith – The Sins Of Justin Ross Harris

For all the things I can say about my parents I can honestly say neither of them ever deliberately or accidently, put my life in danger. Raising a child is quite possibly the hardest job on earth and you may have no idea at all if you’re doing it right until years have passed. […]

Friday Firesmith – Home for the Holidays

When the wildfire that was devouring Georgia in 2007 began to creep closely to the little town of Fargo, the Feds told the mayor to issue a mandatory evacuation order. He told them that such an edict might not only be of questionable legal quality, but also there wasn’t anyone who lived in Fargo, […]
